Slice of Life: Why I Write

I write because I found my peeps at Two Writing Teachers, a community of fellow teacher writers. I wish I could say that I love writing, but it's not the case. Given the choice, to read or to write, I'll pick reading every time. Even today after writing almost every week for eight years, I must prod myself to pick up the computer and craft a slice.

I write to capture the beauty of our world. 

I write to try to figure out our world in all its complicated messiness.

I write to discover more about myself.

I write to share my joy of books. 

I write to reflect on my journey as a daughter of God.

I write to explore the adventure of being Grandma to three marvelous grand boys.

I write because your words on the page inspire me!  

It’s Slice of Life Tuesday!

  1. perfect - I was thinking today about why I continue to write. So glad to read your post today.

  2. You write. I listen to your words in the silence of my mind, Ramona. Have a great day!

  3. I too slice about why I write using poetry today AND I too believe this community is a major motivation for me to write. It is hard to put into words unless you have experienced the power of the TWT community.

  4. Wonderful! I appreciate that you write and share your words. Hugs.

  5. I agree, this is a fabulous writing community! Sweet slice, too!

  6. Thank you for writing and sharing all of those things with this writing community.

  7. I absolutely love this list of reasons to write. What a perfect way to slice on your Tuesday. #WhyIWrite :)
